Knee surgery

Our orthopaedics team treats patients with accident-related injuries as well as degenerative diseases (osteoarthritis) of the knee joint. We offer a wide range of conservative and surgical therapies. This comprises both acute and chronic care.

Our clinic treats all types of accident-related fractures as well as ligament, meniscus and capsular injuries. Together with our specialists in infectious diseases, we provide treatments for acute and chronic joint infections.

We also offer various conservative treatment options for degenerative knee pain, by working in cooperation with our rheumatologists. Should the conservative treatments no longer suffice, we provide a broad spectrum of joint-preserving and joint-replacing knee operations.

The ultimate goal is to find an optimal treatment strategy that is individually tailored to each patient. We have access to a variety of diagnostic techniques to meet this objective, which can also be performed in collaboration with our radiology team and the nuclear medicine department at the Lucerne Cantonal Hospital, as required.


We specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of knee problems such as

  • Acute and chronic accident-related injuries of the knee joint
  • Simple and complex bone fractures
  • Incorrectly healed/ non-healed fractures
  • Meniscus and cartilage injuries
  • Acute and chronic tendon and ligament injuries (cruciate ligament, collateral ligament, quadriceps and patellar tendon etc.)
  • Knee and patellar dislocations
  • Painful osteoarthritis
  • Axial and rotational misalignment of the lower limbs
  • Painful knee implants (revision surgery)


If you need a second opinion regarding proposed therapies or upcoming surgeries, we are here for you. A referral for a second opinion can help you better understand the situation in terms of its benefits and risks.
